Conceptual frameworks

By: , and 



The chapter starts by addressing some of the issues that come from not using a conceptual framework. This point is illustrated using an example with causal factors. The chapter then goes on to explain the mechanics of establishing conceptual frameworks. Lastly, it lays out a step-by-step guide on how to create a framework—generating a set of concepts, specifying the relations between concepts, writing a narrative for the conceptual framework, and rethinking the framework through the entire research project.
